Teen pregnancy, birth, and abortion in Georgia are down for another year.
Experts say the decreases, which apply to young women ages 10 to 19, have several reasons.
Teens are listening to abstinence messages, delaying the start of sexual activity and using contraception more effectively when they do have sex.
But it's not all good news.
While the numbers show a decrease in births among whites and blacks in Georgia, they show a jump in births to Hispanic teenagers.
